We met Robie at her office and admired the view from the 11th floor. Rachel thought Robie worked in a hotel... Robie took us to a really good Asian buffet for lunch. Katherine had 6 different kinds of dumplings, Rachel ate half her body weight in noodles, and I tried everything in the dim sum steamers so we were all happy.
We waddled around and did a little after Christmas shopping after that. The most interesting part of the day was when Juliet took us to an African American hair products shop. I'd never been in such a store, but it was so interesting. The girls had a grand time checking out the many styles of wigs and the packages of beads and barretes. I even found (and bought) the ever-elusive little girls red hair bands for Rachel. It was a new cultural experience for us and we loved it.
